Bench Espresso, 6000

Whilst I'm no coffee specialist, I have drank enough Soy Cappuccinos to recognise an excellent coffee when I try one. The tribe of discerning coffee drinkers is becoming a noticeable wedge in Perth's sub-culture, and the availability of a quality brew is vast and growing, particularly in the CBD.

Soy Mocha, Cappuccino

Allow me to illustrate my point with newcomer: Bench Espresso.  At the less happening end of Hay St, the espresso bar has a sleek, modern interior, punctuated with deep purple and lime green. You can pick up slices and bakes, or try one of their really tasty looking toasties.  I don't need to go on about how delicious the coffee is, but I will recommend trying their hot chocolate or a mocha. They use those most exquisite liquid coverture chocolate. If coffee alone isn't enough caffeine to buzz you out of that 3pm slump, doubling it with Belgian chocolate is sure to do the trick.

Coffee: 4.5/5
Service: 3.5/5
Ambience: 3.5/5
